Finally added a long overdue Mayesbrook Park site tick this morning, a pre work Whinchat! the parks been crying out for one of late, and with some decent habitat management and what seems to be one of the best autumns for this species in London, it was great to finally find one here.
The Siskin invasion has even reached here, with several flocks moving north and a steady movement of mipit south.
Late afternoon the Whinchat is still present and managed a few pictures, its always easier getting closer to a single bird than a family group.
Siskin still moving through this evening and even flushed a grounded Skylark, have only had these on passage over before.
The Wigeon is still here and has moved onto south lake.
This Green Woodpecker was busy feeding.
